If a Domino mail server is down, what's the impact to an application database on a Domino application server as far as eMail notifications being sent out for approval of a document? Will it not get sent at all or would it be in queue and get sent when mail server goes back up?

It will not be sent. Unless the user works on local (Island) mode, in which the mail will be held in local mail.box and will be transferred once the user connects to the domino server.

There is also an aspect of how this application server email notifications are sent.
If the notifications are sent immediately on front-end form actions, then every user cumulates the mails locally and transfers them on next connect to his home mail server.
If the application server is acting as workflow scheduling email notifications, then are the mails generated on server and cumulated in application servers mail.box The mails are routed after next connect from application server to mail server.

So the answer is: it depends :-)

As I deduct from zvonko's answer:
In any case, mails should never get lost. Since they are always kept in mail.box, be it on the client or on the application server and sent as soon as the mail server is back online and a connection is established - the next time the user sends mail or the next scheduled routing task in case the mail resides on the application server.
